Who We Are

Our firm was founded in 1998 and is based in Tucson, Arizona. We are a Registered Investment Advisor with the privilege of serving individual investors and retirement plan sponsors across the state and the country.

For nearly 20 years our firm has provided investment management and advisory services to families, foundations, endowments and ERISA retirement plans across the USA.

Our investment philosophy is driven by the belief that markets work, and the great ideas in finance come from academia not from Wall Street. We maintain strong connections with those in the academic community pursuing new insights that can benefit our clients.

We embrace fundamental truths that withstand the test of time and provide our clients with deeply diversified, global portfolios founded on the Fama-French Three Factor Model.
